Tips to make things a little more manageable

  • Think of your characters in advance.
  • Have an ending to your story in mind before you begin writing. This way, you will know what you’re working towards.
  • Decide how long your story will be and roughly how many words. Remember, this is a children’s book, so it shouldn’t be too long. Then divide that number of words by 28 and aim to write at least that number of words daily.
  • Don’t edit your book as you go along. Wait until your whole story is down.
  • Remember you are aiming for a story which is complete and ready for editing by the end of February, NOT a story ready to publish!

Ideas to make your story a little more interesting

  • You could add illustrations to your story
  • Remember, this is a children’s book, so it can be as unbelievable as you like. Anything can happen!

Optional

If your book is published as a result of taking part in this challenge, please tell us! We want to know! And with your permission, we may even feature your book on our site!

And if you know any other creatives who might also enjoy this challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
